My bedroom closet is a double size closet, with one end at an angle so we lose some valuable hang-able space. It could be much smaller and I am truly grateful for what we have, but our clothes are crammed in that closet. I like to hang most of my clothes (partly because we have only one dresser for the both of us). Yes, I probably have other issues when I have so many clothes. Let's ignore that for the time being.
Back to my cramped closet. I can barely move the clothes to take out an item or put one back. Take a look yourself.
|Trust me - trying to push the clothes to the side to make room was nearly impossible.|
I've seen TV promos for space saving hangers but was skeptical. Really, just changing out hangers is going to give that much more space? Ha, I scoffed.
I saw some of those hangers on sale at a local store so I decided to try a few, just to test it out. There were only two packs of hangers left and I bought them. I switched out the old hangers for the new and it did seem to give a bit of room. Hmm. Maybe there really is something to this. I counted how many items we have (I'm only going to say it hit three digits) and went to the store's website. There I found a good deal on the hangers and even qualified for free shipping.
They arrived last week and I switched out my hubby's clothes first. Wow! There really is more room. I have more clothes than him, so my side will really be the test. I switched out my side tonight and I can say I am impressed. I can actually push clothes to one side and there is more than a fingers width of space.
|This was NOT possible with the old hanger!|
I now want to get the pant/skirt hangers for the final items (those were sold out). Not only do I have more room, but the clothes look so nice hanging on all the same type of hanger. I think I had every type of hanger imaginable: wire, tube, clear plastic, nicer store quality with the sticky edges. Now I have all the same style and my hanging items look so nice and neat.
Out with the old and in with the new.
Now if I can only get the shoes looking so organized I'd be set.
